You must read this article... It's powerful


The Wilding of Sarah Palin
by Robin of Berkeley in American Thinker

When I was in college, I read a book that changed my life. It was Susan Brownmiller's tome, Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape, which explained rape as an act of power instead of just lust. What I found particularly chilling was the chapter on war -- how rape is used to terrorize a population and destroy the enemy's spirit.

While edifying, the book magnified the vulnerability I already felt as a female. Fear of rape became a constant dread, and I sought a solution that would help shield me from danger.

The answer: seek safe harbor within the Democratic Party. I even became an activist for feminist causes, including violence against women. Liberalism would protect me from the big, bad conservatives who wished me harm.

Like for most feminists, it was a no-brainer for me to become a Democrat. Liberal men, not conservatives, were the ones devoted to women's issues. They marched at my side in support of abortion rights. They were enthusiastic about women succeeding in the workplace.

As time went on, I had many experiences that should have made me rethink my certainty. But I remained nestled in cognitive dissonance -- therapy jargon for not wanting to see what I didn't want to see.

One clue: the miscreants who were brutalizing me didn't exactly look Reagan-esque. In middle and high schools, they were minority kids enraged about forced busing. On the streets of New York City and Berkeley, they were derelicts and hoodlums.

Another red flag: while liberal men did indeed hold up those picket signs, they didn't do anything else to protect me. In fact, their social programs enabled bad behavior and bred chaos in urban America. And when I was accosted by thugs, those leftist men were missing in action.

What else should have tipped me off? Perhaps the fact that so many men in ultra-left Berkeley are sleazebags. Rarely a week goes by that I don't hear stories from my young female clients about middle-aged men preying on them. With the rationale of moral relativism, these creeps feel they can do anything they please.

What finally woke me up were the utterances of "bitch," "witch," and "monster" toward Hillary Clinton and her supporters early last year. I was shocked into reality: the trash-talk wasn't coming from conservatives, but from male and female liberals.

I finally beheld what my eyes had refused to see: that leftists are Mr. and Ms. Misogyny. Neither the males nor the females care a whit about women.

Women are continually sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. If under radical Islam women are enshrouded and stoned and beheaded, so be it.

My other epiphanies: those ponytailed guys were marching for abortion rights not because they cherished women's reproductive freedom, but to keep women available for free and easy sex.

And the eagerness for women to make good money? If women work hard, leftist men don't have to.

Then along came Sarah, and the attacks became particularly heinous. And I realized something even more chilling about the Left. Leftists not only sacrifice and disrespect women, but it's far worse: many are perpetuators.

The Left's behavior towards Palin is not politics as usual. By their laser-focus on her body and her sexuality, leftists are defiling her.

They are wilding her. And they do this with the full knowledge and complicity of the White House.

The Left has declared war on Palin because she threatens their existence. Liberals need women dependent and scared so that women, like blacks, will vote Democrat.

A strong, self-sufficient woman, Palin eschews liberal protection. Drop her off in the Alaskan bush and she'll survive just fine, thank you very much. Palin doesn't need or want anything from liberals -- not hate crimes legislation that coddles her, and not abortion, which she abhors.

Palin is a woman of deep and abiding faith. She takes no marching orders from messiah-like wannabes like Obama.

And so the Left must try to destroy her. And they are doing this in the most malicious of ways: by symbolically raping her.

Just like a perpetuator, they dehumanize her by objectifying her body. They undress her with their eyes.

They turn her into a piece of ass.

Liberals do this by calling her a c__t, ogling her legs, demeaning her with names like "slutty flight attendant" and "Trailer Park Barbie," and exposing her flesh on the cover of Newsweek.
And from Atlantic Magazine's Andrew Sullivan: "Sarah Palin's vagina is the font of all evil in the galaxy."

Nothing is off-limits, not actress Sandra Bernhard's wish that Palin be gang-raped or the sexualization of Palin's daughters.

As every woman knows, leering looks, lurid words, and veiled threats are intended to evoke terror. Sexual violence is a form of terrorism.

The American Left has a long history of defiling people to control and break them. The hard core '60s leftists were masters of guerrilla warfare, like the Symbionese Liberation Army repeatedly raping Patty Hearst. Huey P. Newton sent a male Black Panther to the hospital, bloodied and damaged from a punishment of sodomy.

The extreme Left still consider themselves warriors, righteous soldiers for their Marxist cause. With Palin, they use sexual violence as part of their military arsenal.

Palin is not the only intended victim. As Against Our Will described, the brutality is also aimed at men. By forcing men to witness Palin's violation, the Left tries to emasculate conservative men and render them powerless.

The wilding of any woman is reprehensible. But defiling a mother of five with a babe in her arms, and a grandmother to boot, is particularly obscene. It is, of course, Palin's unapologetic motherhood that fuels the leftist fire.

Because as a mother and a fertile woman, Palin is as close to the sacred as a person gets. She is not just politically pro-life. Her whole being emanates life, which is a stark contrast to the darkness of the Left, the life-despoilers.

These "progressives" are so alienated from the sacred that they perceive nothing as sacred. And they will destroy anyone whose goodness shines a mirror on their pathology. The spiritually barren must annihilate the vital and the fertile.

It has been almost two years since I woke up and broke up with liberalism. During these many months, I've discovered that everything I believed was wrong.

But the biggest shock of all has been realizing that the Democratic Party is hardly an oasis for women. Now that it has been infiltrated by the hard Left, it's a dangerous place for women, children, and other living things.

In the wilding of Sarah Palin, the Left shows its true colors. Rather than shield the vulnerable, leftists will mow down any man, woman, or child who gets in their way. Instead of a movement of hope and change, it is a cauldron of hate.

From Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
In these dark times, with spiritually bankrupt people at the helm, thank God we have bright lights like Sarah Palin to illuminate the darkness.

Awesome Nickie, glad you found this and posted it. Demonstrates that there is still hope that people will wake up in time... Keep spreading the word!

What took her so long to see what the rest of have observed for so long...

RightKlik said...

Very good piece. Robin of Berkeley never disappoints.

Mr. Shife said...

I am not the biggest fan of Sarah Palin but the way she has been treated by the media is definitely not fair. Your quote from Martin Luther King is a great one about the whole thing. It just seems like anything that scares us we feel the need to tear down so we feel better about ourselves.

Hoping, Sarah couldn't have emerged at a better time. Something tells me she won't be easily controlled by the Republican mainstream.

Hi Nicki!
I forgot it was Tuesday, the day Robin of Berkeley usually posts new material. Like RightKlik said, she never dissappoints. She described what the left is doing to Sarah, and all conservatives very well. It's a perfect disgrace they get away with it.

I always thought the progressives, libs, and dems with their "womens movement" never did women any good AT ALL! It made life 1,000 times worse for women, for all the reasons Robin said above. Thanks for posting this. People should go in the archives and read more of Robin if they haven't, she really nails the psycho pathology of obowma. He is certifiable, and she ought to know.

Thanks, Bunni. It looks like I've got some reading to do.

Great find, Nickie..

You're right, it is a must read. This should be spread across college campuses nationwide, for sure.

Caeseria said...

Is there a link from which I could share this on my Facebook page? This is incredible. This is awesome. Does Robin have a blog?

The_Kid said...

Nickie. In all seriousness, the left, comprised mostly or fugly women and homosexual men, are Jealous of Sarah.

Jealous out of their little minds.

Plus they hate everything she stands for but it's mostly Jealousy.

Caeseria said...

Found it, I'm a ditz. Got it posted. Not that any of my LWNJ (liberal wacko nutjob) friends will read it, but it's out there if they happen to completely forget who I am and read something from me with "Sarah Palin" in the title.

Spinsterpov said...

Thanks for posting this. The way the left will attack what the profess to protect when it disagrees with their radical philosphies as always disgusted me. And more so with how the believers in that philosphy can't seem to see what's happening. It's good to know that at least one has seen the light.

Thanks, Sol. This is yet another wake-up call for women and men alike.

Kid, a lot of it is jealousy, but there's also a realization that a strong conservative woman is the Left's worst nightmare. (Margaret Thatcher?)

Anonymous said...

Thanks, POV. I agree. And where one domino topples, there might be more to follow.

The_Kid said...

Nickie, they do know that a true conservative candidate can incite the majority to go vote.

I don't believe Sarah is electable, but I do believe she can be one heck of a catalyst to get someone to run who is as well as have an effect on many of the battles we face.

Because of this I'm not optimistic. I can't think of a single republican who could inspire. Romney? yawn. Huckleberry? Another lib. Thompson? No fire.
Maybe Bobby Jindle.

USA_Admiral said...

Great article. When all you know is hate, that is all you know how to do. Only the lucky few lefties escape with sanity intact.

After all the lefty hags Sarah is a breath of fresh air.

Anonymous said...

Kid, more important than 2012, Conservatives need a candidate who'll rally the forces for 2010. Sarah's just perfect to do what Newt did in 1994. And, if she leads us to a major victory, it'll be hard to deny her the 2012 nomination.

Let's see what she can do in 2010.

Admiral, after this past year, a breath of fresh air is welcomed.

Wonderful article. Thank you for posting.
The Left fears Sarah Palin...if not, why demonize her as they do? She is a threat and they know it. I'm glad she is on our side.

This needed to be said. The attacks on Sarah Palin and her family have been sickening. We cannot let this go unchallenged. Robin did a great job of putting it into words.

Ope, it's gotten to the point that I'm taking an attack against Palin as an attack against me.

My Thoughts said...

Senator Mary Landrieu Is A Prostitute
The media denigrates Sarah Palin AND her teenaged daughters and that's okay with the Dems, but say something that is true about a senator who sold herself and her state for money is not okay> Give me a break! I'm with Rush and Beck and Hannity and the rest of us who know the Congress is a confederacy of pimps and prostitutes.
Isn't it funny how they can call Sarah Palin every name in the book, but when it comes to this political whore she's all of a sudden the blessed virgin. Mary Landrieu, Frank, Dodd, Pelosi, ad infinitum they're all whores! The three hundred million promised is the taxpayers money. They are bribing the woman with the taxpayers money. She is even too stupid to keep her mouth shut, she had to announce her price tag and be proud of it.
What a despicable piece of trash.
